10 Easy Halloween Party Crafts for Kids

By  | 

It’s just about time to start planning the Halloween crafts we will be doing for this year’s Halloween party!

Obviously, the kids will be eager to eat piles of candy, but I’ve also found some great activities just perfect for a Halloween party or even a monster theme boy’s birthday party.

Plenty of these activities could also be made beforehand and hung up as party decorations. The Cupcake Liner Bats and Pumpkin Rocks would be perfect over the fireplace, while the Yogurt Monster Cups fit in on the dessert table amongst the cake and other sweet treats.

There are plenty of party activities too, including the Candy Corn Monster Craft for Halloween, the Paper Plate Spiders, WitchCraft, and Spider Activities.

The Edible Pumpkin Play Dough, DIY Halloween Surprise Balls, or Franken-SLIME Halloween Favors are just what all the kids will be thrilled to take home after the party has ended.
